I have a batch of chocolate porter that I brewed just about a month ago on the 9th of January. The yeast and all has settled to the bottom and there is a small film of stuff on the top. Im guessing this may a mixture of hops and or cocoa solids from the chocolate I used.
I was thinking that maybe this weekend I would rack it to a secondary being carfeul to not suck up too much trub from the bottom and also trying to get as little of the film from the top.
I was planning on then leaving it in the secondary for about a week or so and then finally bottling. I am hoping this will give me a clearer beer with no much on the top of it.
Is a month in primary and 1-2 weeks in secondary too long?
